Hello! I'm a mom of two and married to an active duty Marine. After being in pain for over ten years I finally found some doctors that wanted to do more than throw medication at me. In December I had an MRI on my shoulder which found rotator cuff tendinitis. My pain first started behind my shoulder blade which radiated down my arm and up my neck. This started in '97. I've been through physical therapy twice with no help to my neck pain. Finally got a doctor to do an MRI which showed 3 bulging disks in C4,5 and 6. Along with arthritis in my neck, cervical degenerative disc disease and occipital neuralgia. I'm going in for my first set of shots on the 24 and I'm really nervous. But I'm so ready for something to help!
Question- have you found a medication to help with the pain without making you drowsy? I've tried flexeril which I hate! And also tizanidine. It makes me sleepy but I don't wake up with a medication hangover
